obama campaigned on hope and change. but washington and the nation is more polarized. take a look at the numbers. a new fox news poll shows 84% of democrats approve of president obama's job performance, but just 11% of republicans say he's doing a good job. that's a 73-point gap, tied with one other president, george w. bush. another poll shows since president obama was re-elected, just a third of voters think he has been more bipartisan. but the majority, 55% say he's been more confrontational. does this mean nothing can really get done that's meaningful in washington to solve our nation's national debt and help the economy? we have a former white house political director under president george w. bush and a former chief of staff to west virginia senator joe mansion. >> great to be here. >> eric: matt, let me start with you. how do we get here? >> well, you know, i think about the president i served, george w. bush. when he came to office, he really was concerned about trying to if i understand a way to reach across the aisle because clearly bill clinton left the presidency with

indifferent to her over the past four years as they focused their energies on president obama. that clearly ended yesterday. clinton began her testimony with a rare public expression of emotion, talking about the deaths of ambassador chris stevens and three other americans in benghazi. >> for me, this is not just a matter of policy. it's personal. i stood next to president obama as the marines carried those flag-draped caskets off the plane at andrews. i put my arms around the mothers and fathers, the sisters and brothers, the sons and daughters, and the wives left alone to raise their children. >> but through most of the day, she was forceful, even combative, when she felt she needed to be, jousting with republican critics, including wisconsin senator ron johnson. >> we were misled, that there were supposedly protests and then something sprang out of that. >> with all due respect, the fact is we had four dead americans! was it because of a protest?! or was it because of guys out for a walk one night who decided they'd go kill some americans?! what difference, at this point, does it make?!

on the board. jon: let's bring in jonah goldberg. he is a fox news contributor. it is said that mr. obama plans to take a more combative approach on gun control. going around the country putting on a town hall event, rallying the people try to get this thing passed. do you think it will work? >> i am pretty speculative. he said he wanted the help of the people at his inaugural celebrations. he wanted people to call on the pressure to congress. he said he wanted to do this sort of thing and people in the white house sort of live in a bubble about the president's own level of persuasive power. he did a great job of getting our voters on election day, but he gave over 50 speeches in 2009 about obamacare and never once moved the needle of public opinion on obamacare. he is not merely the salesman of people who already think he is. jon: every time he wanted to give a primetime speech, that didn't seem to have a great effect either. >> yes, he kept thinking that the more cowbell approach everything was the answer. but it's a lame duck and he has to go to the states that voted for mitt romney in the e

and the u.s. to talk to north korea for a long time, and that is something that both the obama administration and the of korean -- and the outbound south korean president has been unwilling to do. the chinese have considerable leverage over north korea. on the other hand, beijing's top priority is to ensure stability in north korea. they are not going to do anything that would undermine the regime of kim jong-un or accelerate any movement toward collapse or internal trouble in north korea. for china, that is more important than the nuclear issue, although clearly they will try to rein in north koreans in now. it is likely the north koreans will ignore the chinese. >> the mali rebel army, which currently holds large parts of the country's north, is split in two. the breakaway faction says it is ready for peace talks with the government. the group has been weakened by french, malian, an african union attacks. rebels have abandoned rocket attacks. the residents say they used them as human shields. u.s. president barack obama says he will put general john allen ford for the top nat
at least 200 additional. a federal appeals court struck down president obama's recess appointment of 3 commissioners to the national relations board. one senator is publicly calling the federal commissioners to resign and the rulings they made to be invalidated. a republican from nebraska is here now. senator, thank you for your time today. >> thank you. good to be with you. >> what do you make of this ruling, basically saying, the three folks that the president appointmented to the board, it was unconstitutional, they were no good? >> it's the right ruling. the court of appeals looked at what the president did and said, look, youacked unconstitutionally. you can't declare when congress is going to be in recess, which is exactly what president obama tried to do. so they said, not only are the members unconstitutionally, but the action that they took is also illegal and unconstitutional. and they voided that. so the presidentee got a mess on his hands. these members who are still up there, there are two still up there, in my judgment, need to step down and step down now. >> are you call
and obviously better than the never balancing budget obama and the democrats have proposed for the last four years. so you look at all the data out there. all the public opinion polls say that the american people think we're spending too much money. that the american people think that we are taxing too much. but the problem is that as republicans, i think this goes to what representative huelskamp just said, as republicans we have been seen as the party of big business. and we should never be the party of big business. we should be the party of individuals. the party that helps individuals have a fair share. we have a system that is unfair to small businesses, to individuals, we have a tax system that is unfair, we have a regulatory system that is unfair, and when republicans once again start talking about mainstream, about small businesses, about individuals, that's when we're going to win the fight. but if we keep representing big business if everything that comes out of the house seems like we're just -- that we're just worried about what job creators, i always tell the joke, we always us
